Feral House and Process Media, publisher on topics of esoteric interests and distinctive voices, is a formidable force in independent publishing and often the first and definitive source for documenting important cultural movements.  We feel that stories about and written by members of marginalized communities are interesting and essential to ALL readers.  We are looking to expand our catalog by including more writers who identify as Women, People of Color, LGBTQ, and others who have felt excluded from traditional publishing.

Beginning August 1, 2019, we are opening our submission process with a call to authors with new and distinct voices to submit non-fiction manuscripts that fit into our areas of interest. Stories by and about Women, People of Color and LGBTQ identities are especially encouraged to submit.

Our publishing topics

Memoir-Extraordinary stories of exciting lives. (We are not interested in ‘therapy journal’-style recovery stories.)
Biography-Cultural and historic figures, unique characters, overlooked contributors to social and artistic movements, eccentric creators and artists.
Music-Influential yet underground genres and movements and important and overlooked creators.
History-People and events outside the “textbook” of American history.
Self-Reliance-Skills and practical how-to advice on living in the modern world (or living in the post-apocalyptic world).
Realpolitik-Underground movements, philosophies, and people affecting and influencing government.
True Crime-Experiences and narratives about the criminal justice system.
Mysticism & Occult-Stories about people, groups, and ideas that dwell in the outer realms of belief.
Children-Stories that explore civics, politics, and history for readers aged 7-10.
Food-Cookbooks and culinary histories of overlooked cooks, regional cuisines, and the intersection of food and other cultural movements.
Historic Fiction– Fact-based situations and character-driven narratives that illuminate actual people and events.
